Man Utd targets FC Porto fullback Alex Sandro as Patrice Evra's replacement - report
Manchester United are reportedly targeting FC Porto's Brazilian fullback Alex Sandro to replace Patrice Evra according to reports in Brazil.
Gazeta Esportiva reports that Sir Alex Ferguson is looking for a replacement for the aging left back and Alex Sandro is the leading contender to fill the vacancy.
The 21-year-old fullback has been in impressive form for FC Porto and earned a call up to the national team earlier this season.
The price tag is quoted as £7.5m, the price FC Porto paid Santos for the fullback and Sandro could join fellow countrymen Anderson and Rafael at the club.
There are already a number of leftbacks at the club with summer signing Alexander Buttner and on-loan youngster Fabio as backup to first choice leftback Patrice Evra.
